27 imagesTo this day, my most rewarding shoot took place in Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende over Holy Week in 2009. It was an honor to witness a commemoration that was at once familiar and foreign, somber and jubilant, religious and cultural. Looking back on it, I’m not sure what initially motivated us to see the processions of Holy Week in Mexico. We’re not particularly spiritual, let alone religious. But having seen a few images of parades in San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato — from the somber crucifixion to the joyous “blowing up of Judas” on Easter — something about it spoke to me: I really, really wanted to photograph this event. What transpired was an endless chain of coincidental scenes, colorful juxtapositions, displays of unparalleled emotional depth, and a clarity of culture clash that I had not witnessed before, or since.
